    Yes, but that's what I mean, they *are* going to do those things, and that's why they're going to stop the race instead of just saying "we hit the end of the first segment and Johnson is the winner, but he's getting passed into turn 1!"

    Glad my playful snarkiness is contagious.

    To make room for the Monster Energy Halftime Show Presented by Toyota, of course.

    They're not stopping the races, they're throwing competition yellows. They'll do 5 laps under caution after each segment to bunch the field back up, and I assume to allow everyone to make pit stops.

    So in other words, races will now be automatically longer because of a mandatory 10 laps of caution, besides whatever other cautions they'll throw during the race.

    Oh I thought I read the race would be stopped for 10 minutes, 10 laps of caution makes more sense.

    "more sense"

    Make sure to remember that it makes more sense, relatively. It's still absolutely stupid.

    Well, that part of it isn't much different than it's been for a while with the competition and "debris" cautions.
